Codistances in buildings

Bernhard M. Mühlherr and Hendrik J. van Maldeghem

Vol. 10 (2009), No. 1, 81–91

A codistance in a building is a twinning of this building with one chamber. We study this local situation and prove that affine Bruhat-Tits buildings defined over p-adic numbers do not admit a codistance.
